2016 Perennial Plant of the Year Anemone x hybrid ‘Honorine Jobert’

Add a delicate touch of beauty to your fall garden with the 2016 Perennial Plant of the Year Anemone Honorine Jobert.

Grow this perennial in moist organic soil in full sun to part shade.  For best results, keep the soil slightly moist and grow the plants in a sheltered location protected from winds and hot afternoon sun.

This compact plant is a cultivar of the anemone commonly known as windflowers or Japanese anemone.  Hardy in zones 4 to 8, this plant can grow 3 to 4 feet tall.  The white flowers with attractive yellow stamens grow on wiry stems

Be patient as they are a bit slow to establish. But once rooted they spread by rhizomes creating large colonies.

The deer tend to leave the plants be, so you will be able to enjoy the flowers in the garden or add them to your flower bouquets from late summer into fall.

A bit more information: Japanese anemones, including Honorine Jobert appreciate a winter mulch in cold winter climates. Once established they can spread aggressively, so make sure to combine them with other equally assertive plants.
